We have talked a lot about this topic. We have explained how to configure MPD on your Raspberry Pi or linux device and how to use it through MPDroid. We have showed you how to use it through NCMPCPP and how to configure its amazing graphic equalizer. Finally in this article we are going to talk you about YMPD
Ympd is a very useful MPD Web GUI. This software is written in C and it is powered by Websockets and Bootstrap/JS. It is a lightweight MPD (Music Player Daemon) web client that runs without a dedicated webserver or interpreters like PHP, NodeJS or Ruby. It's tuned for minimal resource usage and requires only very litte dependencies. Once configured MPD the software results to be very easy to install and configure. We have set up it on Arch Linux but the procedure is similar to all the others OS.
Install and configure MPD
We have already explained how to install and set up MPD, so just follow our tutorial on the music visualizer.
You can download the software directly from GitHub or from the dedicated repository
In our case the software is available on AUR (Arch User Repository).
First to all you have to make sure that the MPD deamon is running, if it is not
Now we can run ympd and get on our browser its amazing web interface
If the procedure is successful, you will get this response on your terminal
Ympd will listen on default port 8080, navigate to http://localhost:8080 to see the web gui
Change the default port
You can change the default port with the --webport [PORT] option. For example to set up 9090 as port you have to run the command in this way
For more options type
Well done! Now you can run your MPD, controll it through MPDroid and YMPD and enjoy its amazing music visualizer...have fun!
